About transferring to the HE sector

Further education corporations in England are eligible to apply for transfer to the higher education sector if 55 per cent of their students are studying courses of higher education.

On transfer to the sector a further education corporation will become a Higher Education Corporation (HEC), and eligible to receive direct funding from HEFCE.

It would need to agree, and comply with, the terms and conditions set down in the Memorandum of Assurance and Accountability that reflect HEFCE’s regulatory responsibilities.
